WARNING: FRAUDULENT WEBSITES AND BOOKING AGENCIES
The conference industry is confronted with an increasing number of fraudulent websites that impersonate legitimate conference websites and booking agencies that are not authorised to make bookings for conference participants.
Leishman Associates wishes to advise WWEC2023 participants to be aware of possible scams and urges all participants to only use the official conference website.
Leishman Associates is the only official accommodation agency WWEC2023. If you are contacted by any other company or agency offering accommodation for the conference, please note that these companies are not authorised to represent the WWEA in any way, nor do they have access to the officially contracted room blocks or rates.
Imitation sites and agencies invite meeting participants to supply their personal details including credit card information, in return for a promise to provide travel and accommodation. Please be aware that these unauthorised companies might not deliver what they promise, and in fact may not deliver anything to the conference participant at all despite charging the credit card.
If you have any questions around the legitimacy of a supposed conference website, or are contacted by any such agency, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or +61 03 6234 7844.
